HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aftermaster, Inc. (OTCQB:AFTM) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Advantego Corporation (OTCQB:ADGO) to manufacture Aftermaster’s consumer and professional hardware products. Advantego Corporation (“Advantego”) will provide manufacturing services to Aftermaster through subsidiaries of Sichuan Jiuzhou Electric Group Co., Ltd, one of China’s largest and most respected manufacturers.
The agreement is expected to reduce Aftermaster’s cost of manufacturing by over 50% and increase both the quality and reliability of its products. The savings in manufacturing costs will also enable Aftermaster’s products to be offered in a multitude of retail outlets that were previously not economically viable.
“This agreement is an important milestone for Aftermaster. Significantly reducing our manufacturing costs and increasing our production capacity so dramatically will have a substantial impact on our cost of revenue, our sales, and our bottom line,” stated Aftermaster President and CEO, Larry Ryckman. “Advantego provides us with the much-needed human resources, engineering expertise and overseas management to efficiently manufacture our products in China.”
“We’re excited to partner with Aftermaster in this way and help them get their unique products out to many more people worldwide, with both the highest quality and lowest cost,” commented Fred Popke, COO of Advantego. “Aftermaster’s proprietary technology doesn’t just change ‘how’ you hear, it remasters ‘what’ you hear. Their unparalleled audio enhancements can be applied to a vast array of audio-enabled products, all of which we are looking forward to manufacturing.”
Aftermaster has issued an initial purchase order for 25,000 Aftermaster Pro units (www.aftermasterpro.com) and 25,000 HearClearTV units (www.HearClear.TV) to fulfill backlogged and pending orders. In addition, Aftermaster recently announced the release of its new “Superbar” TV soundbar, which also incorporates its propriety technology.
